Electrolysis in Midtown NYC

We're anticipating warmer weather, which means losing those extra layers and embracing the heat! Summertime is so often on our minds, either while sitting at work or while bundling up in preparation of going out. In our daydreams, we tend to leave out the painstaking time spent shaving to achieve smooth, sun-kissed summer skin. This summer, pamper yourself with electrolysis in Midtown NYC and toss that razor away for good! 

Susan Davina is specially trained in aesthetics and electrolysis, bringing years of experience and beautiful results to residents of NYC. In Susan Davina's Midtown electrolysis salon, she will get you the permanent results you are looking for. By gently using electrical currents through an electrolysis probe, Susan Davina disrupts growth by destroying the growth center of the hair follicle. After a few sessions ranging from 15 minutes to one hour, you will notice a drastic decrease in hair production, until there is no growth at all. You'll always be ready for the beach with electrolysis in Midtown NYC!

Many are choosing electrolysis in Midtown NYC because of the sheer amount of time it saves getting ready to go out - no matter the time of year. During winter, we tend to neglect shaving as often as we would during warmer months. Of course, natural beauty is just as beautiful as smooth skin - but once the weather starts turning in our favor, those who wish to remove hair grown throughout winter have quite the task ahead of them. Imagine never worrying about this again. Imagine waking up to a beautiful June day and leaving without spending a half an hour (or more!) making sure your shaved and ready to go. It almost seems too good to be true - but with electrolysis in Midtown NYC, imagine no longer!

Hair removal can be a very finicky, painful process. So when decided which way to go with the removal it’s important to understand what you’re trying to achieve. Waxing, and plucking are only temporary fixes to a recurring issue. It’s important to know what electrolysis is, and why it might be the best choice for you.

Unlike laser hair removal, professional electrolysis in Midtown NYC can do a much better job of lighter hair colors. This is because electrolysis uses electric energy to make follicles obsolete. While lasers simply burn the hair and drastically slow its growth. Again, lasers only remove darker colored hairs, while electrolysis can help remove hairs of all shades and colors.

As previously stated, electrolysis is the process of making a hair follicle completely mute. Using either a chemical or water conductor to transfer the bits of electricity to each follicle. Your safety is an absolute priority to us, and will insure the process happens smoothly and in the most efficient possible way. Please contact us with any questions about electrolysis in Midtown NYC. We know it can be a very sensitive situation and we’d like you to have the most information at your disposal as possible.

Electrolysis is one of the healthiest methods of hair removal. We get it done without the use of any harmful chemicals or creams that can really damage your skin. Also, electrolysis doesn’t cause irritation, pain or scarring like laser hair removal. Due to the use of properties already found in your skin/body that’s use to destroy the hair follicles. Your body naturally produces saline which is one of the main factors used in destroying hair follicles. In addition, people of African descent may find it difficult to find efficient hair removal methods. Being that the hair shafts are commonly curved which can be troublesome to remove. With our affordable electrolysis in Midtown NYC, this is a non-issue.

Don’t worry about ingrown hairs or scarring. Electrolysis is the best way to go when wanting to remove hair. The process is much safer than using lasers or chemicals. No more burnt skin or ingrown hairs with electrolysis, we’ll remove any pesky hair follicles for good. No worry about irritation or it growing back.

Electrolysis Services in NYC

Hair removal can be such a nuisance. Shaving requires constant upkeep and waxing is incredibly painful. Nonetheless, everyone wants to look their best and feel comfortable in their own skin. Known as Hirsutism or Hypertrichosis, excessive hair growth on the face and body affects millions of people. There are many different causes of excess hair, but the impact is universal: a feeling of insecurity and awkwardness, making going to work, going on dates, or any other social event very embarrassing. Luckily, Susan Davina offers electrolysis services in NYC, to help get rid of excess hair and improve the quality of life for anyone who suffers from this problem. 

Susan Davina has a very gentle touch, and all of her electrolysis clients can attest to the great results and comfort level from her electrolysis services in NYC. 

You may think to yourself: “Okay, I can skip razors and wax, and just get laser hair removal. Why do I need electrolysis?” 
Answer: Laser hair removal reduces hair but does not get rid of it forever. Electrolysis can completely and permanently eliminate any unwanted, excess hair. 

Here is how it works: On your first visit, your electrologist will ask you for a detailed medical history to help identify any preexisting medical conditions. They will then explain how the treatment will be performed. Because hair grows in cycles and can best be eliminated during its growth cycle, successful electrolysis requires a series of scheduled treatments. Electrolysis services in NYC typically last from 15 minutes to an hour.

Aside from the obvious benefit of permanent hair removal, eletrolysis is also benefical because it is safe, sterile, FDA approved and medically recognized. For more information on Susan Davina's electrolysis services in NYC and to schedule an appointment, call today at  (212) 751-7377.

Electrolysis Hair Removal in NYC FAQ

What is electrolysis hair removal in NYC anyway?
Electrolysis treatment refers to the destruction of hair roots with an electric current. Three types of electrolysis hair removal are:

  • Galvanic Electrolysis
    • A DC current passing through the needle causes a chemical reaction in the hair follicle which produces sodium hydroxide, also know as lye, which destroys the hair follicle.

  • Thermolysis Electrolysis
    • An AC current passing through the needle causes vibration in the water molecules surrounding the hair follicle which produces heat. (Similar to the principle behind a microwave oven.) The heat damages the hair follicle. This method is much faster but less reliable than galvanic electrolysis treatment. Thermolysis is also known as 'short-wave radio frequency diathermy'.

  • Blend Electrolysis
    • This method tries to combine the benefits of the galvanic and thermolysis methods by passing an AC and a DC current through the needle at the same time. It is much quicker than the galvanic method.

How does electrolysis hair removal work?
Very fine metal probes are inserted into the hair follicle. A small electric current is then applied which destroys the hair root. Each hair has to be treated individually. (See item above for description of various electrolysis treatment methods.)

How much does electrolysis treatment cost?
Usually there is a rate per hour. Get an estimate of how many hours are required for your particular problem and then multiply it by the rate per hour. A cheap hourly rate does not necessarily mean lower cost if the electrolysis procedure takes longer than it should!

Is electrolysis painful?
This depends on the individual's level of sensitivity. Some describe the discomfort from electrolysis treatment as being similar to using tweezers. Others complain of excessive pain during electrolysis treatment. A qualified electrologist will be able to suggest methods for minimizing the discomfort.

How long does electrolysis take?
The time needed for electrolysis hair removal varies greatly from person to person. Factors such as the size of the area to be treated, the curvature of the hair follicle, the level of skin sensitivity, hormonal balance and heredity all have an effect.

What is the effect of electrolysis hair removal on the skin?
If the electrolysis treatment is performed by a fully qualified electrologist, the tissue surrounding the hair follicle should not be damaged. Electrolysis treatment should therefore be safe when performed at a reputable clinic by trained personnel.

Temporary side effects from electrolysis treatment may include some redness and swelling, dryness and scabs.

How long do the results last?
  • Electrolysis is often viewed as a permanent hair removal method. Once the hair root is destroyed, the hair will not grow back.
  • There are exceptions however. In some cases hair does regrow in places after electrolysis and clients need to return once or twice a year for a cleanup.
  • Hair can continue to grow in the underarms, pubic area and around the nipples during a woman's reproductive years.
